Services are kind of Cocoa only.
Authored by: etwoy on Jul 21, '02 10:22:21PM

Services were initally only available to Cocoa applications, not Carbon ones. The Finder.app is a Carbon app.

This has changed recently though, and Carbon developers now have access to Services. As of 10.2, the Finder can take advantage of them.

Services rock! My favourit is CalcService, which lets you type in a calculation in any Cocoa text app, and then use Services to calculate it. Awesome.
